Steady Pace 33-mile Ride at Moderate Speeds for B (and aspiring B riders)
B Pace (spirited/enthusiast) is for the cyclist who enjoys riding at an average pace, likes a challenge but is not interested in race-like training conditions where the pace is challenged by different paces or top-end speeds. (B+ average pace is 20-22 mph, B average pace is 18-20 mph, B- is 17 to 18 mph) 

Start and Finish on Canada del Oro Loop behind Planet Fitness
Out to Saddlebrook via Oracle and in/out of Catalina State Park
  Route map here

Our goal is to generally maintain a 15-18 mph speed (depending on wind direction) on the 1% -2% grade up to Saddlebrook. Store stop/rest break at the Mini mart in Saddlebrook. Return trip pace 18-24 mph on descent back into Oro Valley. The goal is to keep our group together.

This will be a no drop ride; however, we ask riders to be able to maintain at least the minimum posted speed. Faster riders who choose to go off the front will be on their own.
